8.11.12 - New Music - Julia Volkova
Julia Volkova was one half of the Russian pop duo T.A.T.U. until recently. The duo broke up some time ago (only a year or two), and since then Julia (or, in Russian, “Yulia”) has been working on solo material. For her own work, Julia is staying very modern and hip. Her debut worldwide single is called “Didn’t Wanna Do It”, and the video premiered recently.
I don’t usually care to warn people about songs and videos, but I feel the need to with this ditty. The song is appropriate enough for most settings, but the video is <b>not</b>. There is female nudity and basically sex in it, so, be forewarned. Ok, now go watch it on your computer at work just in time for your boss to walk in on you.

I wanted to dislike this song and trash it, but I am definitely not going to. I love when people surprise me and shut down my expectations and preconceived ideas (which, as a reviewer, I probably shouldn’t have). “Didn’t Wanna Do It” is catchy and house-y and pretty fun. That sound – what do I even call it – that anchors the chorus makes the entire song, and I think without it, all would be lost.
Julia isn’t shy about the whole lesbian thing either. She talks about lines like “she was a good lover” etc. etc. (I don’t think that is the exact line, but I’ve moved on and am listening to something else, so you’ll have to listen to the song to get the word-for-word). Hey, it worked for her the first time around, I can totally understand why she’s leaning on the lesbo crutch again.
Lol. Lesbo crutch. Can you even imagine what that would look like? The part where your armpit goes would be plaid and it would have a little hiking boot! Ah! So cute!
“Didn’t Wanna Do It” will be <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Didnt-Wanna-Do-It-Explicit/dp/B008U741FA/ref=sr_shvl_album_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1344665763&sr=301-2">available</a> in the US on August 21st.
